MET COUNCIL & MPRB AGREE TO WORK TOGETHER ON SOUTHWEST LRT, READER POLL RESULTS
In last weeks poll, we asked if Gov. Dayton should cut the MPRB’s budget over there request for a park impact study. Progress on the issue was made at last weeks MPRB meeting on Wednesday, when Met Council Chair Adam Duininck told the Board that he has never thought the MPRB was trying to kill the LRT project and when MPRB President Liz Wielinski & Met Council Reps agreed that they can work together to avoid delays to the project. Earlier that day the Federal Transit Authority, after attending several working meetings between Met Council & MPRB staffers, weighed in and ordered the Met Council to conduct the pact study at the heart of the disagreement. Check out the poll results, see video of Met Council Chair Adam Duininck & MPRB President Liz Wielinski:
